Former Obama Officials, Loyalists Waged Secret Campaign to Oust Flynn

The abrupt resignation Monday evening of White House national security adviser Michael Flynn is the culmination of a secret, months-long campaign by former Obama administration confidantes to handicap President Donald Trump's national security apparatus and preserve the nuclear deal with Iran, according to multiple sources in and out of the White House who described to the Washington Free Beacon a behind-the-scenes effort by these officials to plant a series of damaging stories about Flynn in the national media.


What's so great about the Iran deal? That it's anti-Israel or something?

Oh I see. It's about the cover up of the Iran deal and how bad it is. The Iran deal is Obama's gift to us and especially to Israel. And Israel is the great fly in the ointment of our having a wonderful relationship with (what I will always think of as) the Third World, the good ol' non-aligned nations, except now they are and have been since 1961 or so.

I'd guess that it's more likely that the US deep state is taking sides on some internal Israeli dispute than that it is anti-Israel.
